Supplier Certification & Procurement Systems

Supplier Certification & Procurement Systems


Supplier Certification is a key enabler for efficient procurement in any organization. To maintain a robust Supply Chain, it is imperative that Procurement Departments are consistently vetting their approved supplier information, capabilities, capacities, and compliances to ensure any procurement initiative leading to Contract awards are done with full understanding of key metrices regarding potential contractors, thereby leading to better decision making, greater transparency and higher efficiency of services.

However, it is also important to note that the cost of managing efficient Supplier Certification models impact bottom line profitability of companies since such processes are resource intensive and are not necessarily budgeted at the enterprise level in most organizations.

The trend today is to consolidate and manage Supplier Certifications at group companies or, even wider, at Industry levels. Such industry-wide Supplier Certification initiatives are being undertaken by support or regulatory bodies who drive those specific industries such as Associations or Government Ministries, thereby championing and taking responsibility of a ‘single-window’ registration and certification model which is then fed to the potential Buyers operating under that Industry for direct procurement activities. By approaching through such consolidated models, the cost of developing and maintaining such Supplier Certification models are significantly lower and more efficient than managing independent ‘silos’ of certification systems.
